الآية رقم (89) - إِلاَّ الَّذِينَ تَابُواْ مِن بَعْدِ ذَلِكَ وَأَصْلَحُواْ فَإِنَّ الله غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

(89) - (Except for those who repent after that and correct themselves. For indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.)

This is a manifestation of Allah’s kindness, righteousness, compassion, and mercy upon His creatures. The Almighty accepts the repentance of whoever repents to Him. Moreover, Allah (swt) has ordered His servants to genuinely repent to Him, that is a sincere, pure, and irreversible repentance. Prophet Muhammad (saws) said:

“Allah, the Exalted, will continue to stretch out His Hand in the night so that the sinners of the day may repent, and continue to stretch His Hand in the daytime so that the sinners of the night may repent until the sun rises from the west.[1]
